    Re: Fratelli Vinaccia 1898

    Yes, indeed. Same with my 1898 Giuseppe Vinaccia -- the little MOP piece got lost in the intervening decades, but I had it replaced when it was restored. See attached photo.

    Re: Willie O' Winsbury

    While I can see where you're coming from, in this instance it may be justified to call it an "error" (or maybe a "fortuitous mistake"): Dave has already posted the reference for Andy Irvine trying to...

    Re: Southern Italian Mandolin

    Hi Mick,

    Yes, John La Barbera has a set of lyrics in his book. Having recently found my copy again, I have just played "La Procidana" as well as "Cu ti lu dissi" and "Ricciulina" for the SAW...
  5. Re: Is there any reson to buy a waldzither if you have a mandola?

    Difficult to say. If you keep the original (open C) tuning of the waldzither, it's certainly a different experience than a mandola or octave mandolin. If tuned in fifths (or thereabouts), it's...

    Two dances by J.S. Bach

    I've just been reunited with two mandolins I had given 15 years ago to my late mother. One of them is a vintage bowlback built in the De Meglio style, but with a label saying "Carlo Rinaldi". My...
  9. Re: Name that TUNE - please help! We're been stumped for years!

    I've just found this thread, and Bill & Scott's great video, when I searched for "Aly's Waltz" on the Cafe after recording the tune for the SAW group (link) -- if anybody is interested, there is a...
  10. Re: Ukrainian Tune #1 Waltz in Am staff notation w/ TAB

    Thanks, Jim -- that's a very nice recording. A transcription of "Vals Bandura" based on this Pawlo Humeniuk recording is also at the same site as linked by Andy earlier:
  11. Re: Ukrainian Tune #1 Waltz in Am staff notation w/ TAB

    Thanks, Mark. Yes, I also prefer "Waltz From Ravishka" among the two tunes I have recorded -- I think mainly because I have played it at a better tempo. For the other one, "Nevil'nyk", I think the...
  12. Re: Ukrainian Tune #1 Waltz in Am staff notation w/ TAB

    Thanks to David, Andy and Doug for those useful links. I have just recorded two of the tunes from the (great!) site posted by Andy:

    The first is Nevil'nyk, the tune transcribed by David and...
  13. Re: Starting into 3-string closed chords after 4 string open chor

    The big advantage of using closed-position three note chords is that they are moveable, so you really only need to learn very few chords shapes and know where on the fretboard the root is. ...
  14. Re: Shostakovich: Waltz No. 2, for mandolin quartet

    I've just come across a quite different setting of Shostakovich's waltz from the one I recorded in 2019. Intended for solo accordion but translating pretty well to solo mandolin with guitar...

    Re: Elizabethan Serenade (Ronald Binge)

    An update on this one: my 2015 version is a bit slow and a bit stiff. Here is a new one, reduced from the previous quartet arrangement to only the first mandolin and guitar parts (I'm playing the...
  19. Re: East Of Eden soundtrack (L. Rosenman), for mandolin orchestra

    I first recorded this classic movie theme back in 2014. My new recording uses the same arrangement, but is I think a considerable improvement in the playing as well as the recording and balance of...
  20. Re: Romantic lieder on mandolin and piano

    Thanks, Eugene and Zachary. Yes, I seem to remember Pietrapertosa doing collections of romantic songs, but then he put his name to a lot of things. These are fun to play, anyway, and it's...
